Sylver Seeker

Original Action Adventure Fantasy LitRPG Reincarnation Male Lead Magic Profanity Sexual Content Gore Traumatising content

After fulfilling the duty, all arch necromancers are tasked with, Sylver Sezari was not expecting to ever wake up again.

But he did.

And after crawling his way back into the land of the living, he’s alive once again. In a strange land, a strange time, and with a strange floating screen in front of his new face.

Either through plan or chance, he’s alive again, and planning to enjoy himself to his heart's content.

-The story isn’t grimdark, but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows either. There will be lighthearted and positive moments, as well as some sad ones. That being said, it’s a whole lot more light than dark.
-This is a LITRPG story.

 

Author’s note:
-It can get very GORY. I’m somewhat desensitized to gore and violence. So while the story isn’t full of gore for the sake of gore, it can get a little too descriptive.
-The MC is a necromancer, so corpses and decay, and all the things that come with it, will be mentioned from time to time.
-I’m a huge fan of Egyptian, Slavic, and Greek mythology, so expect quite a bit of that. That said, so much is altered, you’ll be hard-pressed to guess how exactly it is being used.
-POV changes are almost entirely limited to the first few chapters.
-Despite being ‘immortal’ the MC can, and will, die. In the event he does, the story doesn’t end, simply time skips forward. Which in some cases is going to be worse than just dying.
-I love plot twists, as much as I love red herrings and Chekhov guns. Deus Ex Machina’s not so much.

At the College of Harakan, the institution created by the Principality of Losserai to search for and nurture the princedom's brightest poets, Zile Kresovis is soon to graduate. He has been widely regarded as the greatest poet since the founding of the college itself, and perhaps the one to finally solve the Poem.

But it all changed a year ago. Where once Zile could string together earth-shattering stanzas with ease and just as easily orate them, he now faces a problem -- stage fright. At least, that's what everyone thinks. Zile suspects it may be something more, as the same scene repeats itself in his head whenever he goes to perform.

After suffering a final moment of embarrassment and facing expulsion, he drunkenly wanders the alleys of the Losserai capital, meeting a strange girl that might just bring his name back into the spotlight.

 

*****

AN: Not a magic school story. It's adventure fantasy, with a hint of mystery. Power systems, magic, and all else will be explained as the story progresses.

This is my first time writing, so please give me constructive criticism. I'm happy to accept it.

Author's note: (This is my first fiction & Draft, please comment or point out anything you find wrong or off ^.^)

Edit: (After careful deliberation, I've decided to remove the Traumatizing content tag because after reviewing my plans, most of the scenes I will write have no relation to trauma causing events. More than that, I don't think the scenes of abuse is any more than your standard grimdark, be that as it may, I'm not writing a story aimed for kids.)

Defenders of Fantasmyth

Defenders of Fantasmyth

Original Action Adventure Comedy Fantasy Female Lead Strong Lead Multiple Lead Characters Non-Human lead Magic High Fantasy

Jakyra, a young-adult coairse* dragon with an affinity for wordplay and skill in fighting, is a pest to her government the Dragon Crown. 

This odd relationship leads her to make contact with a long-lost magical, draconic construct of great renown called Ismat, leading up to a string of bizarre, humorous, and troublesome events. 

Chance brings together the impulsive dragon, her quiet, resolute elven friend Sauda, amiable, honor-seeking dwarf Gunnar, and the construct Ismat. 

The Omniguards, Defenders of Fantasmyth, are born.

 

*No, that is not a typo.


Defenders of Fantasmyth is a high fantasy xenofiction set in a world of dragons, elves, dwarves, and swarms of other mythical races. The rise of a party of rangers under the banner of a great magic artifact is told in a fast-paced story, complete with a loose magic system, zany characters, humor abound, and an overarching plot. It also has wordplay for days.

The story does not contain romance, grimdark or litRPG elements, and isn’t a monster fiction. Like all of my works, it is family friendly.

Being a web serial, the story is subject to mistakes in plot, grammar, and so on. Feel free to help polish this story by providing constructive feedback. Thank you.

Finally, Defenders of Fantasmyth updates on the 5th, 15th, and 25th of each month.

I mainly write fiction for my own hobby, it makes a nice change from academic scribbling! I started writing this quite a number of years ago. It has grown somewhat organically out of a bunch of different interests in World Mythology, World Building, Drawing Maps, History and Epic Fantasy fiction into what it is today.

So i hope you enjoy the story and thanks for reading!

On just another normal Monday the world changed. The universe had reached a threshold humanity didn’t even know existed, and it was time to finally be integrated into the vast multiverse. A world where power is the only thing that one can truly rely on.

Jake, a seemingly average office worker, finds himself thrust into this new world. Into a tutorial filled with dangers and opportunities. In a world that should breed fear and concern, an environment that makes his fellow coworker falter, Jake instead finds himself thriving.

Perhaps… Jake was born for this kind of world to begin with.

 

Release Schedule:

5-6 chapters a week, though 7 a week here to begin with. May get lower (or higher) later on.

Average chapter length: 2500 or so on average. I have a backlog of quite a few chapters to go through, but I will post faster than I can write in the beginning as I have a fulltime job.

Tags and content warnings are mainly to give myself creative freedom later on. This is my first novel ever, and English isn’t my native language so go easy on me chaps. Any feedback is more than welcome though of course.

"I may have got a wrong inference or even right, but I intend to keep showing you what is in my heart," he said taking her hand and placing it on his chest, leaning his head on hers, his eyes closed. "You know I have waited years to let this feeling out, to stand confident in front of you, for this moment," and he gently touched her lips with his, kissing her. He puts his one arm around her, pressing her, and the other on the table to support her. She then put her hands around his neck, holding on tight, responding, as the water droplets kept falling from her hair. She knew nothing else and let it happen, for the moment, except the fact it's against the rules to do things with her professor.
